High Mount School - Home Of The Trojans

Nov 18th, Superintendent's Message

HMS is holding strong! Our system has been "stretched" a bit with staff quarantines. However, we have not seen any transmission of the virus at school among students as a direct result of the many safety measures that we have in place. As we have maintained all along, student safety is a priority and we continue to work closely with the St. Clair County Health Department. At this time, we plan to continue with in-person learning until it is deemed unsafe at school or our system cannot withstand the quarantines. Thank you for your patience and support. Everyone at HMS values our family partnerships. Please do not hesitate to contact me at bhorner@highmountschool.net if you have any questions or concerns. Stay safe!

School History

The first school, consisting of one room, was built in 1880. By 1960, eight additional classrooms and a basement were added. In 1967, six more rooms and a multi-purpose room were added. In 1992, the new gym and two classrooms were added and extensive remodeling was completed. In April, 2001, the community voted to help High Mount expand the school. This expansion provided needed space for the growing student population, storage areas, and allowed for enhancements to the curriculum.

In 2003, great things happened again. Construction of a new wing began. We now have new and additional classrooms, band/chorus music room, science laboratory and new offices. In 2006 we installed an electronic marquee and constructed a new main entry-way.
